On July 18, 2012, WTVJ was rebranded "NBC 6 South Florida". The rebrand featured a new expansive set designed by Clickspring, new NBC Artwork's Look F graphics package which varies depending on the time of day, and a new custom music package with the NBC signature. Below are demonstrations of the new on-air look. The 6 used from this point is similar in style to the 6 used on rival WCIX from 1989 to 1995 before the two stations swapped frequencies.
